ultrasound

I had an ultrasound this morning.

The tech saw an empty gestational sac - which would be typical for around 5 weeks. Since I don't know when I conceived, I'm dated at 5 weeks - due date of 5/16/2007.

I thought I was farther along than that. If that date is accurate, I had a positive hpt around 8-9 days after conception. Not impossible, but not likely either.

This suddenly feels very similar to my last pregnancy, which ended in a miscarriage. DH tells me that we need to remain positive.

I don't have much choice but to wait and see. I see my OB on the 25th and we'll see what she thinks / finds. I'm sure I'll be going for another ultrasound in early October and then we'll have a better idea of what's happening.

This also means that if that date IS correct, I'm very early and at higher risk for the dental work.

I'm tired.

  1. Praying for a good outcome, Melanie!! If it helps any, for my first two pregnancies, in which I knew exactly when I conceived (due to lots of NFP charting, lol), we saw an empty sac at up to 6.5 weeks. Finally at 7.5 weeks we saw a tiny heartbeat. I have heard many many women online have this same thing happen.

    Sending you my hugs and prayers.

  2. Thanks, Amy ;) I know that there is as much chance for positive outcome as there is negative. It does help to hear your story, so thanks for sharing.
